Amanda + Heeva // Styled Shoot // Bixby + Pine

Imagine our excitement when Wedding Paper Divas contacted us and asked us to design and style a shoot that had no boundaries (hello, a designers dream!). We played with textures on the table with a food centerpiece, had plenty of wine, and some curated details to tie it all together. The invitation is most certainly one of our favorite parts. We love that the bride is wearing a print as well!

PANTONE COLORS OF THE YEAR // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE AND OLIVIA STROHM PHOTOGRAPHY

When Pantone released their Colors of the Year, we were underwhelmed. While the colors are pretty, by themselves, we were hoping for something a bit more trend-setting...#thanksfornothingpantone.

But, #thegirlsofbp are ALWAYS up for a challenge, so we decided to do a super cool shoot while we were at our annual retreat up in Leavenworth (where we also planned and designed a snowy elopement--but that's to come later).

STYLED BOUDOIR EVENT // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

Oh friends. Have we been working on something AMAZING! You may have seen it on our Snapchat (bixbyandpine) or on our Instagram story (@bixbyandpine), but kids, we had a FREAKING blast shooting our styled boudoir event promo photos. 

We really collaborated with the best of the best a couple weekends ago, and the results are IN-SANE. Alicia from Rogue Styling absolutely SLAYED and made our beautiful models look like they were modeling for Victoria's Secret (and we are even kidding). Then, Samantha McFarlen hit it out of the park with photo and video...and here is a sneak peek of the results!

FINDING YOUR PERFECT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE AND TONIE CHRISTINE PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we partnered with Tonie Christine Photography to talk about finding your perfect wedding photographer.

We believe that weddings are meant to celebrate two people, pledging their lives together. So the wedding planning, wedding day, and even after the wedding should all be an experience (and a good one at that!)--because afterall, YOLO, or YOMO rather (you're only married once)...fingers crossed! ;)

So this leads us to our topic...how to find a wedding photographer that's perfect for you, in two steps!

THINGS WE LOVE: MAKE UP AND HAIR // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

It’s no question we love makeup and hair around here. In fact, we may or may not beauty tutorial junkies. So it’s no surprise one of our biggest recommendations to our brides is to hire a professional hair stylist and makeup artist for your big day! This is the one day in your life when you hire somebody to follow you around and take photos of you so why should you be looking like your regular old self!? We're not saying you need to have a ton of makeup and so much hairspray in your hair that it doesn't move, but you should look like your best self on your biggest day. Whether you want a soft and romantic or a glam Kylie Jenner look, there are excellent professionals that can carry out your vision perfectly. While some artists provide a free trial run before your wedding, most charge a fee for a pre-wedding run through (hey, you don’t work for free do you?!). We think this is never something to skip on to save money. Try setting up a practice run before a fancy date night or your engagement photos to get the most bang for you buck! We have started a Pinterest board to show you some of our favorite hair and makeup looks.

Don't forget to make it to the bottom, as we talk about her business intensive and give you a glimpse at her rad video by Ike & Tash.

Y'all. We. Freaking. LOVE. bridal sessions.

The South has got it right friends. SOOOO many brides head to a beautiful location a day or so before their wedding and just get to know their photographer and feel beautiful. It doesn't get much better than that? Like, think about it...beautiful details, your gown, hair and make up, your ring, ahhhhhhhhhhhh, thinking about it makes us swoon.

To encourage our brides (and others) to get bridal sessions done, we put together this portrait session with Lora Grady Photography, at the BEAUTIFUL old missile shelter in Manchester State Park. So, take a look at what we put together!

The NEW Bixby + Pine // logo + sneak peek film

Friends. GOOD GOD. The day is here. Today is the day! Finally they're opening up the gaaaaaaaaaaaaate. Oh, wait...wrong day, but boy,  it sure feels like it's coronation day! (Where are all our Frozen fans at?!)

Anyways, LET'S FREAKING GET TO IT! We want to first show off our STUNNING new logo by the talented + ultra-kind chick, Jenny of Graceline Art. She and Molly, the studio assistant were nothing but pure kindness to work with. We started in one direction, and then had a mini // brand // identity crisis, and they just uplifted us and praised us for following our hearts. Really, these two are a class-act, and we are just BEAMING with joy and excitement to show off this gorgeous new logo, which we feel embodies Bixby + Pine. So, ta-da!!!!!!!!!
